The St. Francis Prayer To Stop Birds from Pooping On Him

O Lord

Let your birds of the sky continue to surround me

Let them continue to inspire me

But maybe once in a while

O Lord

Could you have the birds

Ease up on the turds?

I accept your will in all things, O Lord

Including the birds you send to me in zeal

So many birds…

And always after

They’ve had a big meal.

Yes, Lord, holy is thy name,

But would it kill you to consider

Redirecting their aim?
